About Us

At Tara Adams Law we know a lot about commercial, business and IP law.  We should – with over 20 years’ experience, both in Australia and abroad, and a Master of Laws under the belt.  We provide fit for purpose, high-quality and effective legal advice and services in an efficient manner, at affordable prices.

We tailor our services to small and medium enterprises (but do have the odd multi-million dollar client on our books too – start small grow big!).  Whether you are a start-up, growing business, established organisation or an entrepreneur with big dreams and bigger goals, we are designed to fit your needs.

We are commercially savvy, technically sound and, without boiling the peas, cross the ‘i’s and dot the ‘t’s!  This is what you need in your lawyer – excellent service and a nice attitude giving you value for money.

For most businesses it really doesn’t matter how much teak or ceiling-to-floor windows are in your lawyers’ office – we prefer to keep our overheads low so that we can focus on your interests and efficiently and cost-effectively meet your needs. We can bill as you desire – whether that be quoted billing caps, fixed legal fees or for larger ongoing roles, retainer work based on regular hourly billing, we will work to find a pricing model that works for you.

We use Dropbox, Microsoft One Drive and Google Apps to share information. We collaborate using tools you know and trust.
